Trinity Mount Pocono Labyrinth and Meditation Path became a possibilty when the
parish acquired 5 acres of land adjoining the original parcel. When it was time
to "beat the bounds" Charley Day developed the meditation path. The Rt.
Rev. Paul V. Marshall, bishop of the Diocese of Bethlehem, joined us in celebration
as we walked the path and dedicated our use of the land to God with drums, music,
incense and prayer. Markers were placed along the path which became the Stations
of the Cross.
A site was selected for a labyrinth, and youth from Province 3 helped to clear the
area. Parishioners joined in this work which began with a time of prayer for our
use of the land and for those who would seek to make this spiritual journey.
With the help of Lyle Hixenbaugh, the labyrinth was laid out so that one faces Jerusalem
upon entering it. Drawings of the vision were provided by Peter Salmon and the work
was done by parishioners and local craftsmen. The Tae Kwon Do class, after making
use of the path and the labyrinth, provided attractive benches for travelers.
